Intruder Tournament Super Final - the Rematch

Don't miss the Intruder Tournament final match today at 5EST, 10GMT! http://twitch.tv/IntruderTournaments

This weekend will see the finale of Infiltration Inc., Intruder's 3v3 community tournament. It's been a long road in this double elimination tourny, with the first matches having been played at the end of September. Thirteen teams signed up, and the two that stand at the end of the bracket are Team Raven Shield and Men with Excellent Hats. Let's take a closer look at the teams themselves and how they've progressed.

In the case of Team Raven Shield, they've had numerous close matches, many of which were saved with come from behind victories. With that challenge they've become attuned to those pressure situations. I briefly spoke with LavaTramp, one of the team's members who stated, “It's been a nice opportunity to play some serious, competitive matches, you really get to develop team specific tactics.” When asked about Men With Excellent Hats and their use of code words throughout the tournament he said, “The 3d voice chat really gives people the opportunity to mess with each other.” I spoke with fellow teammate R3vo who had this to add, “I found out if I take the match too seriously I over think it and end up playing terribly. (It's) better just to take each match as a normal round.”

As for Men with Excellent Hats, it's been a different story. They are undefeated in the tournament, which includes putting Team Raven Shield in the loser bracket, so they are the favorites going into the final. The key to their success thus far has been the development of new code words during the match, to throw off other teams if they watch their matches as well as the enemy team they're playing against. They're said to be taking the competition seriously and that's clearly worked for them so far.

My favorite aspect of this tournament is how it has garnered community interaction, not just between Superboss and the players, but between the players themselves. Teams scheduled their own matches with each other, and have helped make this tournament what it is. Thanks to all the players who participated, we hope you had a blast!

For those who haven't been keeping up with the tournament, there are ample resources to get caught up. You can visit the YouTube channel* which has all of the matches recorded and uploaded with commentary. The final itself will take place Saturday, December 6th and will be streamed on the Twitch page here*. Here's to a great finale of a successful tournament!

Intruder Tournament sign ups!

intruder tournament

An Intruder Tournament is being organized by player iceman (profile). So far a lot of people have signed up but looks like they want more for some teams. Here is a quote from the post as of today.

Welcome to Infiltration Inc., a 3v3 tournament that will have players casting the games on Twitch!

Signup
To sign up, simply reply to this thread with your team name and the names of the team members. Signups close at 11:59 PM on Sunday the 14th.

Format
The tournament will be a standard double elimination tournament. Every team will have 1 week to organize a playing time with the team they’re facing as well as a pair of casters.
Each match will consist of 3 sets of 2 or 3 games each, with a 1 minute break in between each set. The winner of a match is the first to 2 sets. 

All games in the winner’s bracket are to be played on Riverside B2RD
All games in the loser’s bracket are to be played on Riverside B1RD 

The sets are as follows:
Set 1: 3 games
........Team 1 guards, Team 2 intrudes
Set 2: 3 games
........Team 2 guards, Team 1 intrudes
Set 3: 2 games
........Team 1 guards, Team 2 intrudes
........Teams switch after 1st game
Tiebreaker:
........If the match is tied after all 3 sets are complete, sudden death ensues.
........Team 1 will start as guards. In the case of a draw, teams switch.
........Sudden death will continue until one team wins a single game.

Timing
Signups will close at 11:59 PM GMT, Sunday the 14th
The first round of matches must be complete by Monday (the 22nd) morning
The second round must be complete by Monday (the 29th) morning
I'm sure the pattern is obvious enough for you to figure out the rest of the rounds =P

These deadlines are not quite set in stone. I will decide if the matches can go past the deadline on a case by case basis. But, for instance, if two teams can't play at ALL until that Monday afternoon, I'll let them play then. Further rules and guidelines will be on the match scheduling thread when I get it up.

Teams
The teams that are signed up currently are:

Team Raven Shield

  • R3vo
  • LavaTramp
  • OpticalF3AR

Salad Snake

  • Okangu
  • SebastianTheCrab
  • Lopez.

Foxhound

  • Dregas
  • Rekedens
  • TBD

Titanic Trio


  • TehBucket
  • 1110
  • TheTwelthTardis

 

You can see more on the event here and sign up herehttps://superbossgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1847

They will also be looking for streamers and recorders so make sure to tell them and to come on the chat. Iceman set up a twitch and youtube channel here are the links. Make sure to subscribe to these for when the tournaments begin!

Intruder Series 011 Red Dot Sight

Intruder Series 011 Red Dot Sight

Hey! In this Dev Log video we will be going over the Red Dot Sight. It's the first attachment in the game and has some pretty cool functions. 

Before you can use the Red Dot, you have to find it in one of the various locations through out each of the levels. Once you find it you can press the "Use" key to get it in your inventory. Re-equip your SMG and bam, you got a nice little aiming device.

The primary use of the Red Dot Sight is to allow you to aim easier while looking down the sights. It allows you to see more clearly than the normal iron sights can.

It also has a secondary function called Focus Mode. You can activate Focus Mode by holding right mouse button down while you are aiming down the sights. This will zoom in slightly and also lower you mouse sensitivity. This is great for long distance shooting because it allows you to aim more accuratley much easier. The video also goes over some other use case examples.

As usual you can pick up your own copy of Intruder at http://superbossgames.com/intruder as well as gift codes if you want to buy one for a friend. We've made a lot of patches recently as well so make sure to check out the change log and twitter feed. Till next time!
